Default hotel info in Miami

Has anyone found a good hotel deal in Miami near the Ships? Any hotels that offer free shuttles to the docks. We will be coming in the day before we sail so we need only one night there. Traveling with children and Adults

Thanks
Linda

We stayed at the Radisson , Nice hotel..they will pick you up at the airport if you prearrange..I think for $4pp. also close to the metro free transportation monorail thing. We took it to Bayside and had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe..Bubba Gumps shrimp is there as well....we bid on Priceline $50 but you could probably get it for less...lots of taxis available to take you to the port next am...enjoy your cruise..we also were close enough we walked to a park with some neat mosaic chairs and you could see the port from the park..

We also bid on a 3 star Downtown Miami and got Radisson for $50, first time I bid and it was accepted. I was very happy with the hotel, especially for the price and location. Give Priceline a try, you can definately save some money. We just took a cab to the hotel from the airport and a cab to the pier the following day.

You can probably bid $35-$40 (total bill will be approx $50 after taxes, fees) on priceline for a Priceline 3* hotel in Miami, unless there is a special event, it is a holiday, etc.... The "3*" hotels priceline uses in downtown Miami are the Radisson, Marriott Biscayne Bay, Sheratown Biscayne Bay, Doubletree Biscayne Bay, and Hyatt Regency Miami...All whithin 1-2 miles of the port. You should also be able to bid approximate $60-$65 if you want the 4* Intercontinental. Just make sure you have only the "downtown" section checked, if you don't want to stay too far away from the port.

Priceline will either reject your bid, accept it, or give you a counter offer. If your offer is not accepted, add the zone "South Beach" (the next closet section to the Port of Miami) and up your bid by $5. You will still get a decent hotel fairly close to the port. The hotel you get will most likely be in the downtown section still, as the South Beach hotels tend to be a little more expensive.

You can also check out biddingfortravel.com. This site is essentially a forum where people post their winning priceline bids, with the areas broken down into various "topics". This will give you an idea as to what are the current "winning bid amounts" rates are for various hotels in any particular area, along with the hotels that are being awarded.

Hope this helps!
